Pikeville will soon have a new eatery, one familiar to, but missing for years from the city.
Restaurant industry public relations source RestaurantNews.com reported Thursday that Fazoli’s, the popular Lexington-based Italian quick-service restaurant will locate in Pikeville in Summer 2020. The agency reported that Fazoli’s President and CEO Carl Howard announced that the company has executed an area development agreement with franchisees Jordan Stapleton and Hillary Harkins to open the restaurant.
“We are teaming up to create a family business that will be loved in the Pikeville community,” Harkins said. “Currently, there is not a Fazoli’s near Pikeville, and we are in need of premium Italian food here. There used to be a Fazoli’s in Pikeville long ago, and now, we’re bringing it back for all of the fans who have missed it so dearly.”
The nearest Fazoli’s location to Pikeville is in Paintsville.
